The World Economic Forum has recently issued a report focusing on cryptocurrencies and blockchain.
The World Economic Forum and its Council for the Global Future are also becoming increasingly interested in cryptocurrencies. According to Finance Magnates, the independent international organization issued a report yesterday stressing the importance of cryptocurrencies.
In addition to stating in the report that cryptocurrencies have the potential to create new markets, the WEF also noted the importance of the blockchain technology itself.
The World Economic Forum particularly emphasized the use of blockchain technology in the World Food Program (WFP).
